Category: Product ID: 687


In this evocative piece, the artist masterfully navigates the intersection of nature and war, breathing life into a Roman Centurion’s post-battle narrative. The canvas becomes a stage for the artichoke, a symbolic medium chosen with deliberate care. It is not merely an object; it becomes a living testimony to the artist’s dedication.

As our eyes traverse the meticulously sculpted scars on the artichoke, we sense the resonance with the Centurion’s wounds. The details are not just visual; they are tactile, urging the observer to feel the echoes of a brutal conflict etched onto both warrior and vegetable alike.

The suspense surrounding the battle’s outcome hangs like a veil, leaving us in contemplation. The decisive axe cut, a surgical incision through the artichoke, unveils its heart—the core of vulnerability, akin to the warrior’s exposed soul. It’s a metaphor that transcends the canvas, inviting viewers to reflect on the inherent fragility within strength.

This artwork serves as a dual testament—to the unwavering valor of noble Centurions and the unforgiving harshness of their challenges. The juxtaposition of the ancient Roman artichoke variety, the ‘Mammola’ or ‘cimarolo,’ adds another layer of authenticity. Its selection from the field is a deliberate act, ensuring that nothing but the true essence of a Roman warrior is represented.

In the intricate dance between art and nature, this piece becomes a narrative tapestry, weaving together the resilience of the Centurion and the timeless beauty of the artichoke. Every stroke, every scar, and every choice of medium speaks volumes, making this artwork a profound exploration of history, valor, and the enduring spirit of ancient Rome.
